Shinji IKARI

Shinji is the pilot of Evangelion Unit 01. Deeply disturbed, he often attempts to run from his problems. Despite this, he has unusually high synch rates with Unit 01, even when he is forced to pilot it with no previous training. Shinji's mother died when he was very young, leaving him with his father, Gendo Ikari. Due to feelings of abandonment as a young child and Gendo's very cold demeanor, Shinji feels a certain amount of malice towards his dad. Fighting his inner demons, he also is very impacted by Gendo's occasional praise and continually seeks his acceptance.

honestly, even if he's annoying at some points, he's definetly one of the most realistically written characters imo.

Honestly, he's one of the most relatable characters in anime and I believe that he is hated just because people can't bear seeing themselves in a person like Shinji.
